I use this 6.6' (2 meter) active cable from Xcellon and it has been working great for my build since April. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1400943-REG/xcellon_tb3_540_2_thunderbolt_3_cable_40gbps_100w_2m.html

CalDigit active cable works great at 40 Gb. My first one was defective (would disconnect if twisted at all) and they sent a replacement right away at no cost. This cable has been rock solid.

I got this cable too, It disconnects the EGPU from my PC after 5 minutes, and then I have to restart. (since hot plug doesn't work with my version of windows). Not usable.

I have the Razer Core X Chroma, Radeon RX590, Yoga 920.

Hey guys, unfortunately it looks like I am late to the party.. I just got an egpu and I am looking for a 2m 40gbps cable. It will be used directly from my Razer Core X Chroma to my HP Zbook. I have a setup in my room with a half wall that I plan to put the egpu on one side of (kids can't get at it) then run the TB3 cable to my laptop. I typically sit in that spot anyways so this is actually pretty convenient, but I do require a 2m cable with this solution.

I see several cables have been talked about but the most popular (that I have noticed) is the caldigit one but I can't find it in stock anywhere. The only cables I can find in stock have very poor reviews, or are much more expensive. I noticed Razer has their own 2m cable for $60 at target so I am thinking of going that route, even though $60 seems really spendy for a cable.

Anyone have any other ideas/suggestions for something that I can actually find for sale somewhere?

@chris_g, I bought the Cable Matters 2M cable from Amazon and am really happy with it. Over a year now with no issues. Seems to still be in stock still, at least in Canada. (link)

60$ doesn't seem badly priced for a 40gbps cable, assuming you're talking USD. I think when I bought this it was about 90 CAD, and that was when the exchange rate was better than it is now.
